Queen Latifah Speaks Out About 'Gone With The Wind' & Hattie McDaniel In New Interview

Queen Latifah is opening up about how she feels about the 1939 movie, Gone With The Wind, which gained a lot of attention over the weekend with its racist undertones.

The 50-year-old actress, who played one of the stars of the film, Hattie McDaniel, in Netflix’s Hollywood, shared that the movie should be gone.

“Let Gone With the Wind be gone with the wind,” Queen shared in an interview with Associated Press.

She went on, opening up about how Hattie wasn’t even allowed in the theater for the Oscars, where she won Best Supporting Actress. Hattie became the first Black woman to ever win.

“They didn’t even let her in the theater until right before she got that award. Someone came outside and brought her into the auditorium. She wasn’t even allowed to sit in there. And then she had to read a speech that was written by a studio. You know that’s not what the hell she wanted to say,” Queen added.

She continued, “Then after that, all she could do was play the same kinds of roles. …So the opportunities at that time and the way that those in power in that business were relegating us and marginalizing us and not allowing us to grow and thrive after that was just terrible. And a lot of that is still around today.”

Over the weekend, HBO Max pulled the movie from its streaming service after it was called out, and now, the network has plans to return the movie there, with an introduction from Black film scholar Jacqueline Stewart.
